Yoga is a tool to empower & enrich your life.
Tantra Hatha Yoga is a method of exploration and discovery.
My classes combine alignment-based movement, breathing, meditation, philosophy, art-making and nutrition. I teach my students how to embrace sensation, build strength, and find steadiness. Ha-tha means "Sun and Moon," and it is the physical practice of engaging opposite forces in order to experience union. Inspired by the tradition of Sri Vidya Tantra Yoga, which can be understood as "the science of God," I use grounded and practical tools to feel inspired and connected. The process is deeply integrative and nourishing so that you can access your own source of wisdom and creative intelligence.

"Maria's teaching style is beautifully direct and creative. All love and beauty surround her. Each word she speaks is filled with knowledge and passion. She leaves room for your own interpretations while guiding you to see things from another perspective. I feel like I have opened my heart space up and allowed more time for myself to grow and experience life and truly feel each experience along the way simply observe and notice what I notice. Lovely!"
“Maria is such an authentic person with a gift for connecting people back to their truth. We are so incredibly lucky to have her in our community. She is both an amazing artist and inspiring yoga teacher, and she shares her wisdom of Tantra and the depths of her personal practices.”
“Maria is a calm and insightful teacher. The tools she provided continue to help cultivate a more free and loving version of myself, equally strengthening my working and romantic relationships.”
“Maria’s helped me connect my body with my mind in a way that I’ve never experienced. Finding a cause for discomfort in the body and giving me visualizations and exercises to helped eliminate the discomfort and form new habits to avoid it in the future.”
“Maria has a beautiful way with words. She listens to my thoughts and ideas and presents them back to me in new and exciting ways. She has helped me remember the inspiration for my dreams and goals and she encourages me to take action. Maria is a creative independent thinker and a wonderful being to share time with.”
“Maria’s methodology is a true representation of her passions & her gifts. In our work together I was able to cultivate a stronger connection between my mind & my body, and unearth a powerful vision for myself as a creator. As a result, I am infinitely more grounded, not just in my personal practice, but on my journey to self actualization.”
“Maria and her work is a blessing. She might not know it, but she is actually handing people golden keys to open a wider part of their inner and outer world. And real life things happen as a result of that opening, with awe and adventure!”
“I contacted Maria with hopes that she could help me improve my ability to communicate my emotions to others effectively, a concept that I have struggled with for most of my life. The results were unbelievable, and almost immediate - never have I felt more comfortable and at ease addressing my personal weaknesses. Maria is judgement free, soothing, and confident; most importantly, she genuinely cares about helping others and empowering them to enrich their lives and overcome their unique obstacles, which is reflected in her personal and interactive approach. I really can’t thank her enough! ”
“Maria’s holistic approach is truly an effective way to change your habits and life. Maria helped me to visualize what I want in a partner and then equipped me with a way to get there, without inserting her opinions (as I’ve experienced in the past). She’s truly a teacher who doesn’t just tell you what you want or what you should want, but she empowers you to reach these conclusions and gives you concrete ways to achieve your goals.”
“Working with Maria is a treat, and meetings with her feel like finally receiving the assistance you want from teachers with the warmth of what you want from friends. She is a receptive, insightful, and strong guide, and allows space for whatever comes up to come up—moving through it towards a positive flow of co-creation. Her feedback is fueled with support and creative idea-generation. Interest. Passion. Insight. I leave our meetings reminded of my own creative power with the support to propel me forward. She’s a great teacher and I would recommend her to anyone looking for extra insight and inspiration in their personal projects!
